      I forgot to turn off the blower on my wood burning stove… fire smoldered…was away 16 hours…came home to a house that smelled like we had a three alarm fire in it. I’ve tried freezing the family (keeping the windows open) ,  burning candles, incense, placing pine-sol around the house.The smell is gross!!! I had to wash all clothing and curtains.PLEASE HELP ME…..I cant stand this awful smell.  



        Try placing bowls of vinegar around your rooms. Sometimes that will soak up the smell.


          Odor-Ban is an enzyme based cleaner that worked for me after I had a fire.  Sam’s Club is the only place that carries it but I don’t know if you can buy it online from them.  It’s concentrated for pre-laundry soaks and also comes in a spray bottle that I used on carpets.


            Pet Force is something that takes odors out of anything!  Even skunk.  I would think it would work on carpet, furniture or whatever you needed to spray.  You dilute it and it does a great job.  Used it to get cat urine odor out.  It even goes into the padding under the carpet which is good.  You can find it online with a search.  You can use it in a carpet cleaning machine too.


              I have never done it, but someone told me to sprinkle ground coffee around…of course, you gotta be careful no to put it where it will stain something.
